Does anyone have a link to a site with good info about what happens during waterbirth, if the mom needs any special monitoring, etc? Also what happens to the baby in the process.
I am due to give birth in a few weeks-april 5 to be exact. This is my third baby, and the first time i'm refusing induction. Our town has a brand new hospital, and I recently visited the birthing suites. While they do not have actual "birthing" tubs, they have a larger than normal tub in the room, deeper than a standard. When I was there the nurse commented about seeing her first waterbirth a few months before hand, and how peaceful it was for mom and baby, and that she had hoped that someone would want to try it there. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since.
I have so many questions about it, but I really would love to try this, and avoid other interventions.
